Hi-Level Golf Course is a third-generation family-owned and -operated public course in continuous operation since 1965. The course accommodates both the expert golfer as well as the beginner. Hi-Level’s unusual history and natural beauty make it one of the most unique courses in the area.
Hi-Level was the first public golf course in Clarion County, constructed on the site of Fern City, an oil boom town with a population of 600 in 1885. The course was created by Edward Hess, a prominent oil and gas producer who purchased the land in 1954. Construction of the first nine was begun in 1963 and officially opened for business two years later. Nine more holes were added in 1967. A five-hole Beginner’s Course was added in 1970.
The course contains gently sloping fairways and Scottish-style contour greens. Co-founder Robert Hess says: “Our greens were built to go with the contour of the land. If a hill were in the place where we wanted a green, we would build the green on top of the hill. Later we added sand traps around the greens to make play more challenging. Some of our greens are immense, like the one on the third hole. Most of the greens on the front nine, though, are big and the distances small. This is because when the course was built, few people possessed those skills that golf demanded. The back nine reflects a more challenging environment. Many golfers learned on the front nine, then graduated to the more difficult back nine. This variety of distances and challenges offers something for golfers of every level.”
